Open House New York Tours Manhattan District 1/2/5 Garage & Spring Street Salt Shed
October 13, 2016
This Saturday and Sunday, October 15th and 16th, the Annual Open House New York Weekendreturns with tours, talks, and special events at more than 250 sites across all five boroughs. Among those sites not typically open to the public, Dattner Architects and DSNY are proud to open the doors of the year-old Manhattan District 1/2/5 Garage & Spring Street Salt Shed for tours on Sunday, October 16th. Visitors will be guided through the garage, up to the green roof, and into the Sat Shed, providing a behind-the-scenes glimpse into what it takes to manage the city’s waste stream, and to keep our streets clean. The tours will show visitors why these new infrastructure buildings have been named the “two of the most distinguished public buildings in the city in years” as well as the processes that go on behind the scenes to ensure the city is kept healthy, safe and clean.
